Yesterday, I reported that five anti-foreclosure activists were arrested during a sit-in at Wells Fargo while they called on the bank to negotiate with Jeremy Griffin, a construction worker from South Seattle, instead of pushing ahead with foreclosure and eviction proceedings. We previously reported on the activist blockade of his home, which subsequently won him a temporary stay on the eviction. And on how investment bank Morgan Stanley securitized his mortgage and sold it off to investors.
To make this story as easy to follow as possible, Callan Berry and I made this short animated movie about Griffin's story:
I've sent emails out to Mayor McGinn and the city council asking for their response to yesterday's arrests, and will update this post as they come in.
